Sami Hyypia's side also progressed from their group despite conceding nine goals in two defeats to Manchester United. PSG, meanwhile, are top of Ligue 1 having lost just once all season and, after cruising through their group, they are hopeful of improving on last year's run to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
